Do the US cable companies carry CBC, or do you just get it with an antenna?
It's on Comcast cable in the Metro Detroit area. Of course, CBET-Windsor is just across the river.

You want weird stuff? ESPN had some kind of tag tournament on TV an hour ago. LOL.


My mom taught me an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It's too bad Repubes don't believe in prevention for COVID, but they can deny someone water waiting in a line to vote.

I missed the Men's synchronized swimming. Who got the gold?

Got CBC in Midland County (actually in Sanford or in Midland)!!
Really? I didn't think they had anything but satellite out there. When I was in Freeland, almost everyone had Dish or Direct TV. My Air BNB had Direct TV.

I actually when to Sanford to see the dam and went to Jack's Hometown Pizza. Very nice people and hot subs.

That was Espn Ocho. It's a day of programing of very questionable and strange contests. Among Them are:

Minecraft
Cherry Spitting
Bus Parking
Cow Chip Throwing
Tag
Foosball
Slippery Stairs
Putt Putt
Pogo Sticks
Air Hockey
Death Diving
Air Guitar

There's a few more. The name ocho comes from the movie Dodgeball. In the movie the games were broadcast on ESPN 8, The Ocho.

It's almost over. I just saw the Men's Marathon on NBC. At this point I'm a little burned out on the whole thing. Watching Rhythmic Gymnastics, Water Polo, and Team Handball in the middle of the night loses its charm after awhile.

I was watching just regular ESPN though.
